Manon’s de Boer’s new film Caco, João, Mava and Rebecca (From nothing to something to something else, part 2), (2019), is a sequel to the work Bella, Maia and Nick (From nothing to something to something else, part 1), (2018), which was commissioned by CAST and presented at Kestle Barton for Groundwork in 2018. The films are part of a developing trilogy entitled From nothing to something to something else that focuses on the time and space needed for experimentation and for the process of creation.
Shot at the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum in Lisbon, Caco, João, Mava and Rebecca is an intimate study of four young people improvising with dance and movement in an empty space, acting without instruction or direction.
Caco, João, Mava and Rebecca is presented at CAST as part of a programme of artists’ films relating to landscape and portraiture. ‘Echoes and Returns’ looks back to moving image presentations at CAST in the last year. Film installations by Melanie Smith, Francis Alÿs and Manon de Boer will each be shown for three weeks in CAST’s black box projection space.
